Stephen, re those gentleman farmers: Edgar Bronfman Sr isn’t just any old billionaire, he’s from Montreal’s wealthiest family (they’re the Seagrams whisky guys). So the US taxpayer in his boundless generosity is subsidizing the “small family farms” of Canadian billionaires. Edgar Bronfman Sr: Just another seasonal agricultural worker doing the jobs Americans won’t do.
As a Canadian and a broken-down loser tree farmer myself, can I get in on this farm program? Or is it only for fitting a helicopter pad on top of the barn and an en-suite marble bathroom in the grain silo?
